Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) in upstate New York used to have two FBOs, but USAirports has purchased the Landmark Aviation FBO at the airport. USAirports will continue operating all the Landmark facilities and take over Landmark’s airliner fueling contract. Anthony Costello opened the Rochester USAirports FBO after launching his air cargo and hangar service in 1986.
